An Old Lin-Cola Bottle



I took the above picture of the Lin-Cola bottle. It is the second bottle I own that was from the Lincoln Bottling Company.  I really don’t know anything about the Lincoln Bottling Company. I’ve asked many antique dealers if they’ve ever heard of the company-and they all said they had not. This particular bottle appears very old. It is not in great shape. The glass is chipped near the bottom and the paper label is torn in places. I love the fact that Abraham Lincoln’s image is clearly visible. So what was “Lin-Cola?” Well, obviously is was a soda that was cola-flavored. Why are the bottles so rare nowadays? I certainly don’t know the answer to that. I love the bottle as an artifact of the Abraham Lincoln marketing world. So it sits on my shelf with my other glass bottle manufactured by the Lincoln Bottling Company. If anyone knows anything about the company or the bottle, please leave a comment. There must be some bottle collectors out there. Do share!

    I grew up in Albany Park in Chicago in the 50’s &60’s. Lincoln bottleing co. was on Central Pk. ave. just south of Montrose Ave. at the alley. They produced Old Abe soda in a bunch of different flavors. I hope this helps. S.J.Y

    I have a wood crate stamped Lincoln Bottling company. All I know is this company was located in Chicago. I have done research and not found anything else.
